What customers say about Sonix's automated transcription 💘

4.98 rating from 197 reviews
Fast and easy, and accurate. And searchable.
Very high accuracy transcription with noisy tapes / accents. The ability to edit as you listen is incredible. I haven't been impressed with code to this extent since the release of google maps.
Very impressed of your product. The general concept is ingenious for the task to be accomplished and the implementation is impressive. Your product gives great satisfaction.
Very cool and fascinating too. Ahh the power of algorithms. I can tell you that I love the overall UI experience because it's pretty, dumbed down, and very easy for me to use. I've done a lot of radio and this service would be invaluable for that kind of work.
Your product is amazing, I love so many features including the video capture on the side, ability to change the transcript as you go, highlighting, downloading audio files... SEARCHING TRANSCRIPTS
The accuracy of the AI voice recognition is amazing! Sonix is by far the most accurate of the 5 or 6 services that I tested.
